Install SI5 Professional and Trial

Installing SI5.5 Professional and Trial

 

The Trial version of SI5.5 is exactly the same as the full Professional version of SI5.5.  Our Trial requires that you install both the SI5.5 Server and at least one SI5.5 Client.  For our Trial, we use our Express Install which will install both the SI5.5 Server and the SI5.5 Client on the same machine.  You can install additional SI5.5 Clients via the download link that is discussed here.  

1.       Verify that you are on the machine that you have designated to be your SI5.5 Server.

2.       Download and unzip the SI5.5 Trial installation.  You can sign up for our Trial here.  The contents of the folder where you unzip the files to will look something like below:

3.       Double-click the Install.hta file (if you are not showing file extensions on your machine then file will just be named “Install”).  The D-Tools System Integrator 5.5 install form will open.

4.        Unless you know exactly what you are doing, and even then, click the View the Installation Guide link.  This will open a browser to our most current installation instructions.

5.       The next (optional) step is to download and install the trial of Microsoft Visio 2010.  If you already have Visio 2010 (or Visio 2003 or 2007) installed or if you do not plan to use the Visio interface you can skip this step.

6.       Click the Install System Integrator 5.5 Trial link to begin the installation of both the SI5.5 Server and SI5.5 Client.

7.       The installer will determine if all prerequisites are installed.  Click [Next >].

Express Configuration

We highly recommend using the Express Configuration option.  The Express Configuration uses all of the defaults for our configuration and will automatically download and install SQL Server Express 2005.  Although not shown below in the Summary, a default username and password will also be created for you (you can modify this username/password later if you choose via the SI5.5 Administration Console).

Default Login

Username: admin

Password: admin

2.      Click [Finish] when the installation completes.

Custom Configuration

 

The Custom Configuration option is for clients that want to use their own install/instance of SQL Server 2005 or 2008 or for clients that do not want to use our default Port and folder locations.

 

File:User:Seth_Enos/Install_SI5_Trial/image014.png

 

 

1.         This step checks whether you are upgrading from previous version of SI.  If you want to use your own instance of SQL, click the "Install to Existing SQL Server" option and then fill in the machine name\SQL instance name in the "Database Server" field. You will also want to provide your "sa" password for your instance of SQL. Click [Next >]

File:User:Seth_Enos/Install_SI5_Trial/image015.png

2.         This next step will display with all of your information.  Request Port “9000” is the default.   If you change this, make sure that the port you choose is allowed through your firewall if you are using one. If you are using your own instance of SQL then you will need to input the port you use for your instance. You can also change the default paths for the Project File and Product Share folders.  We recommend you leave these to the defaults.

4.       Create an Administrator password for the SI 5 Administration Console.  Both the User Name and Password are case-sensitive.
